Cornerstone, a certified FRP applicator, has successfully completed over 75 FRP projects. As a result, Cornerstone is sought after by clients from around the country who need smart thinking and innovative solutions for complex projects.
Glass Fiber-Reinforced Polymers (GFRP) and Carbon Fiber-Reinforced Polymers (CFRP) are used in structural engineering for their notable strength and elasticity. The FRP method has been used by experts in the repair and rehabilitation of buildings and structural elements across every industry.
Broad Applications – Cornerstone has been using this technology for cost effectively strengthening aging buildings including historic facilities, water & wastewater treatment and pumping facilities. Cornerstone continues to increasing its use as a cost-effective solution suitable for various applications.
